Be an Angel Day encourages us to do acts of kindness, and to help others.
This special day has strong religious roots. Jayne Howard Feldman, the creator of this day, says she was inspired by angels to create this day on August 22. The objective of this day is to be like an angel and do something good or kind for someone. It encourages us to be God’s servant in doing good things for others. It is intended to do something nice or kind for someone who is in need of help. The type of angelic help you can offer is not defined or limited. It can be physical, emotional, or spiritual.

After all, life can be difficult at the best of times, and so when you work as a team, it becomes easier and challenges can be overcome. The human race is truly remarkable, and we often find that help is there from unexpected sources. It could even be a complete stranger. Be An Angel Day celebrates this, and it gives us the opportunity to let our angelic sides shine through.
This day encourages us to inspire and support those who need it. It also is about recognizing people who have been angels to us.

On those days, it is important to notice the people that make us feel good. You should recognize their energy, efforts, and kindness.
